A Message From the President: 



To readers of this new OakM'ood College Bulletin for 2003-2005, 1 say, "Welcome!" We are happy 
for your interest in Oakwood and hope that you have already made, or are leaning toward making, this your 
college of choice. Oakwood College was listed among the "top institutions of higher learning in the 
Southern region" for the past several years by U.S. News and World Report in its annual issue rating 
colleges and universities in America. 

Like all institutions of higher learning, matriculation at Oakwood may be a bit challenging at first. 
Each degree choice requires a comprehensive curriculum of courses so that you can best understand the 

subject matter and fulfill the requirements of the respec- 
tive degrees. Further, college life must govern itself by 
basic guidelines for which you may not initially see the 
rationale. For this reason, this book that you have in 
your hand will prove invaluable as you introduce your- 
self to the world of higher education. There are many 
options available to you. Oakwood's degree offerings 
comprise more different career paths than ever before. 
In this bulletin, classes you will take are clearly outlined 
along with capsule descriptions. 

The bulletin offers an introduction to Oakwood, the 
campus, the buildings, and the personnel. The people 
listed here as administrators, faculty, and staff are com- 
mitted to helping you to accomplish your educational 
goals. Many of you will make your full-time home with 
us at Oakwood. You will live for the first time in a resi- 
dence hall with other students. Part of your education 
will be the opportunity to socialize on a wider scale than 
you ever have before. We encourage you to take advan- 
tage of this opportunity to make friends and network for life. 

At Oakwood your spiritual development is a vital concern. Thus, preparation for service to God 
and humanity is a main component of learning. The Church and the Office of Spiritual Life plan and 
implement activities and programs to enhance the students' personal experience with Christ. What we 
desire for you is twofold: that you attain all the educational tools that you need to succeed in this life 
(mental, physical, spiritual, and social), and that you leave Oakwood with a strong faith and commitment that 
will transcend this present world. 

Finally, Oakwood offers all the elements of success. The knowledge is here. The positive social 
experiences are here. The spiritual life is here. Now the opportunity is yours. You must engage yourself; 
you must take the initiative in seeking every source of support. The effort you put into your college 
experience will determine what you get out of it. 

During your time here, if you make a commitment to its aim, Education, Excellence, Eternity; and 
its motto. Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve, Oakwood College promises to be one of your most rewarding and 
fulfilling experiences. I challenge you to join us for the journey of your life.

Mission Statement 

Oakwood College, a historically Black, primarily liberal arts four-year coeducational Seventh- 
day Adventist institution, founded in 1 896, has as its fundamental purpose, quality Christian educa- 
tion. Its mission embodies access to educational opportunity, academic excellence, and spiritual 
development for its students who come from diverse geographical, cultural, educational, and socio- 
economic backgrounds. In addition to its emphasis on the liberal arts, the College provides biblical, 
professional, pre-professional, vocational, and continuing education studies. Some of these stud- 
ies emanate from a limited number of institutional cooperative programs. Its programs and activities 
are unequivocally Christian in character, designed to integrate faith and learning, encourage a vi- 
brant spiritual experience, prepare individuals for service to God and humanity, and provide an 
atmosphere for appreciation for oneself and affirmation of cultural diversity. 

The Oakwood College mission is stated in seven general goals. 

Spiritual Vitality 

To promote a Christ-centered, Seventh-day Adventist worldview among students, faculty, staff, 
and administrators. 

Educational Excellence 

To demonstrate academic excellence in quality of teaching and learning among both students 
and faculty. 

Nurturing Environment 

To cultivate an inclusive environment that is sensitive to the needs of students, faculty, staff, 
and the extended college community that includes alumni, constituents, friends, and other sup- 
porters. 

Operational Efficiency 

To provide high quality, efficient service that is customer and employee sensitive. 

Resource Development 

To provide sufficient financial resources to support and maintain all aspects of institutional 
advancement and development (i.e., viable academic programs, strong faculty development pro- 
grams, up-to-date instruction, adequate physical facilities, technologically sophisticated campus, 
adequate student housing, sufficient student scholarships, and other physical space needs. 

Institutional Relations 

To enhance the image of the institution by strengthening communication with internal and 
external publics (i.e., an informed student body, and knowledgeable faculty and staff). 

Technology Leadership 

To continue developing a technologically cutting-edge campus that enables students, faculty, 
and staff to be more effective and efficient in teaching-learning processes, support functions, and 
administrative operations. 



Oakwood Facts

Oakwood College Is located five miles northwest of the heart of the city of Huntsville. Huntsville 
is a cosmopolitan city located in the north central portion of the state of Alabama and nestles in the 
beautiful Tennessee Valley, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It has a population of 
approximately 1 75,000. The College property consists of 1 , 1 85 acres at an elevation of 1 , 1 00 feet 
above sea level. Currently, 500 acres are under cultivation, and 105 acres comprise the main

Cultural diversity abounds on the campus of Oakwood College, where the average enrollment of 
1 ,700 students come from as many as forty states and thirty countries. The residential facilities,

deportment as interpreted by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The college claims exemptions 
from the provisions of Title IX set forth in CFR Sections 86.21 , 86.31 , 86.40, and 86.57(b) insofar as 
they conflict with church teachings and practices of morality, deportment, and appearance.

Scholarships are also available to transfer students whose GPA is 3.00 and above. Awards will 
be prorated according to the admissions classification of transferable hours. 

Returning students who have a spring semester cumulative GPA of 3.50 or above and are not 
receiving other academic awards can qualify for the Incentive Scholarship. Students must be 
enrolled a minimum of two semesters. This scholarship requires an application and is subject to 
the availability of funds.

The transportation allowance per semester is expended the first day the student arrives on 
campus during the semester period. 

A repayment of any unused portion of the above noninstitutional costs paid to the school via 
Title IV funds (excluding Stafford or Plus Loans and Federal Work Study) must be repaid to the 



20 



college upon termination of enrollment. Examples of the appropriation of the refund policy are 
available upon request. 

Financial Assistance 

Scholarships are charged back at the same rate tuition is refunded. If the funds were paid by 
the Title IV Federal Financial Aid, the refunds are based on the U.S. Department of Education's 
Return of Title IV Funds Policy. 

As of August 23, 2000, students receiving Title IV financial aid who withdraw from Oakwood 
College will be subject to the new policy. This policy requires that when a recipient of Title IV grants 
or loan assistance withdraws from college during a semester, the institution must determine the 
amount of Title IV grant or loan assistance which the student earned as of the withdrawal date. The 
unearned portion must be returned to the Title IV programs in accordance with Federal Regulations. 
In certain instances, the student may also be required to return Title IV funds to the Department of 
Education in addition to that which the school is required to return. [CFR 668.22] 

Students receiving financial aid should consult with the Financial Aid Office concerning the 
possible effect of awards received caused by withdrawal or change in courseload. Any remaining 
balance on account must be paid at the time of withdrawal or dismissal.

Financial Aid 

Students applying for the Federal Student Financial Assistance Program (known as Title IV) 
must comply with the following procedures in a timely manner. A student's noncompliance may 
result in the loss of potential benefits and will result in a protracted and negative institutional regis- 
tration experience if the student needs the federal resources to assist in his or her educational 
expenses. 

The following procedures are strongly advised: 

1 . Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). After the FAFSA has been 
processed, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be mailed to you. Once you receive your SAR, 
check it for accuracy of information. The Financial Aid Office (FAO) will electronically retrieve it; 
however, Oakwood College must be listed as one of the schools of attendance in order for us to 
retrieve it. 

2. If the SAR states that it has been selected for review in a process called verification, you must 
submit the college's Verification Worksheet (available from the FAO or the Internet) and the 
following documents: 

a. A signed copy of the base year federal income tax return to the FAO. Base year is the 
year that precedes the academic year for which aid is being applied. For example, 
applicants for the 1 999-2000 academic year would submit their 1 998 federal income 
tax return. If the student did not and will not file a tax return, then he/she must submit 
the appropriate copies of his/her W-2's. 

b. Legal or biological parents of dependent students must submit a signed copy of their 
complete base year federal income tax return(s) to the FAO. If the parent(s) did not 
and will not file a base year tax return, then they must submit copies of their W-2's. 

c. The student, spouse, or parent must submit official documents that substantiate the 
annual amounts of untaxed income for the base year. Untaxed income may include 
Social Security benefits, pension benefits, workmen's compensation, or parsonage 
allowance. If the documentation is not an official/regulatory form with appropriate sig- 
natures, it will not be accepted by the FAO. 

3. Students applying for the Federal Stafford Loan or the Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students 
(PLUS) must submit a signed loan application to the FAO. 

4. Students applying for scholarships through Oakwood College must submit all required docu- 
mentation by the specified deadline dates. 

5. An entrance interview session must be attended by all first-time loan borrowers before loan 
proceeds can be applied to the student's account. 

Financial Aid Policies 

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Semesters, Terms (LEAP and Certificate Programs), 
and Sessions (Summer). 

Federal regulations require the college to establish reasonable standards for measuring aca- 
demic progress. The college must monitor participants in student financial assistance programs to 
ensure that those academic standards are met, and that students make real progress toward 
competing their degrees. The policy must contain a qualitative component, a quantitative compo- 
nent, and an overall time-frame component. A student must maintain satisfactory academic progress 
regardless of whether the student was a previous recipient of financial aid or not. 



24 



Qualitative Component: The college's current academic standards are the qualitative standards 
for this policy. This policy articulation also recognizes the cumulative grade point average as the 
sole numeric measure. This change effectively terminates use of the unadjusted grade point aver- 
age in academic decisions. Federal regulations specifically require students who have earned 61 or 
more hours (juniors and seniors) to maintain the minimum cumulative grade point average required 
by the college for graduation. This component will be evaluated before the fall semester. Those 
minimum standards are outlined In the Oakwood College Bulletin as follows: 



Hours Completed 


Required GPA 


0-29 


1.70 


30-60 


2.00 


61-92 


2.00 


93-128 


2.00 



Quantitative Component. Once at least 24 semester hours have been attempted, a student's 
cumulative hours passed must be at least 75 percent of the cumulative hours attempted. For 
example, a student enrolling In 1 2 hours per term for two semesters would be required to pass 1 8 of 
those hours to retain financial aid benefits. A student enrolling in six hours per term for four semes- 
ters would also be required to pass at least 18 hours. The successful pass rate Increases to 80 
percent once the student attempts 61 or more hours. This component will be evaluated at the time 
of each application. 

Overall Time Frame: Students are no longer eligible to receive Title IV federal financial assistance 
after attempting the lesser of 1 50 percent of the published academic program hours, or 1 5 full-time 
equivalent semesters. A full-time equivalent semester is deemed to contain a minimum of 1 2 hours. 
For instance, if the published length of an academic program Is 1 20 hours, the maximum time frame 
established by the college must not exceed 1 80 attempted credit hours (that is, 1 20 x 1 .5). 

Transfer, Summer, Consortium, and Transient Hours: Students transferring to the college are 
assumed to be maintaining reasonable academic progress. All hours transferred from prior or 
concurrent attendance at other schools will be considered In establishing the class standing for 
grade requirements, and are integral in determining the overall time frame allowed for financial aid 
eligibility. The GPA from other colleges will not factor Into the cumulative GPA at Oakwood College. 

Grades: Courses with nonasslgned grades, Including withdrawals, are considered in determination 
of the percentage of hours completed toward the degree. Refer to the College Bulletin for the 
regulations concerning the effect on cumulative hours attempted. Acceptable grades are A, B, C, 
D, and P. Unacceptable grades are: F, I, W, NC, FA, AU, DG, and U. All of these grades are 
considered in evaluating the qualitative, quantitative, and overall time-frame components. 

Second Bachelor's Degree/Dual Degree: Students seeking a second undergraduate or dual 
degree will be permitted to enroll In up to six full-time equivalent semesters beyond the first bachelor's

a.m. to 1 1 :00 a.m., to meet the basic health needs of the campus community. The Health Services

30 



tory fees and transportation costs to off-campus medical facilities are the responsibility of the 
student. 

The health of each student Is important. To assist Health Services In providing the care needed, 
a medical history, which includes laboratory testing, a physical examination within the last 12 
months, and a TB test within the last 1 2 months, is required. A record of immunizations Is required 
by Oakwood College and the state of Alabama. This record Includes documentation of polio, teta- 
nus, diptheria, measles, mumps, rubella (2MMR) and hepatitis B series and mennigococal. All 
students born after January 1957 must show proof of two doses of live vaccine measles. Be 
sure this information arrives before registration. 

All students entering Oakwood College must have medical insurance coverage. Insurance for 
students without medical coverage may be acquired through the school. The cost for the year is 
divided Into two premiums, August and January. Students are enrolled In the insurance plan at 
registration. The fee Is part of the student's bill each semester. If a student wishes to use his/her 
own personal medical coverage, this must be indicated on the insurance waiver card 
each semester during registration. A card or copy of membership is to be carried by each 
student In case of an emergency. All international students are required to accept the insur- 
ance offered by the school. For further information contact Health Services at (256)726- 
7220.

31 



Any student desiring counsel and/or additional information concerning the Code of Student Conduct 
may contact the Chaplain, Residence Hall Directors and Deans, or the Office of the Vice President 
for Student Services. 

Student Handbook 

In every community there are laws. It is the responsibility of every student to secure the 
Student Handbook hom the Office of Student Services and read the rules and regulations governing 
student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Familiarity with and acceptance of 
the requirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more interesting and 
certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his/her scholastic attainment 
but also upon his/her general conduct and attitude toward the community in which he/she lives. As 
a citizen of the college community the student must realize that he or she has been admitted to a 
privileged group and that he or she has no right to work against that group. Any student who violates 
the rules of the college may be asked to withdraw (see sections Student Citizenship, below, and 
Withdrawal from the College due to Disciplinary Actions, in the Student Handbook). 

Student Citizenship 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any department of the 
college is subject to supervision and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his/her 
connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially approved withdrawal. The record of each 
student is reviewed periodically, and his or her continuation at the college is based upon his/her 
attitudes and general conduct, as well as scholastic attainment. 

Listed among the governing policies of the college are infractions which are considered cause 
for suspension and may be cause for dismissal or serious disciplinary action for the first offense. 
Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices would knowingly be 
accepted at Oakwood College the first infraction may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is detrimental may 
be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus and may be sub- 
jected to charges of trespassing should he or she return without permission from the administration. 
A student suspended for disciplinary reasons will not be allowed to make up class work assigned 
and done during his/her absence. Missed work will incur a grade of "F" and will be computed in the 
student's final grade. 

Weekend/Overnight Leaves 

Permission for an overnight or weekend leave from the campus may be obtained from the 
appropriate residential housing office for students who live in residential housing. For traveling, 
written permission from the parent or guardian must be on file for every student who is not of legal 
age (19 years of age in Alabama). 

Use of Vehicles 

Since the ownership and use of an automobile frequently militate against success in college, 
students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them unless absolutely necessary. Fresh- 
men are not permitted to bring automobiles to the college or the vicinity, or to operate automobiles 
owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in the residence halls or in the community, who own or operate any 
type of motor vehicle (e.g., car, motorcycle, scooter) must register it with the Office of Security at 



32 



the time of registration for tlie fall semester, or within 24 hours of his/her arrival should arrival be after 
registration has been concluded, or within 24 hours of its procurement within any semester of the 
school year.

ing medical coverage) at the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforcement 
personnel. (For further information contact Campus Safety at (256) 726-7371 ).

Oakwood College is a boarding institution. As such, all students are required to live on campus 
and participate in one of the three meal programs (exception: nontraditional housing residents can 
opt out of meal plan). Students who wish to live off campus must meet one of the following criteria:

Academic Policies 



Curriculum 



The curriculum at Oakwood College reflects very distinctly the educational philosophy, 
purposes, and needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. From its earliest history. Seventh-day 
Adventist education has been multipurpose — a combination of theory and practice. Strong empha- 
sis has been given to providing students with a college program that would grant them job entry and 
provide opportunities for the development of a personal code of moral and social values for Christian 
living in contemporary society. It is for this reason that the curricular offerings at Oakwood College 
have a very pragmatic character. This is true in the humanities, social sciences, applied sciences, 
and natural sciences. Because of the needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as 
society at large, Oakwood College has developed some disciplines that are almost exclusively 
professional. However, regardless of the amount of vocational emphasis, all baccalaureate and 
associate degree programs have been so organized that there is a common core of general educa- 
tion studies required of all students. 

The mission of the college strongly emphasizes health, the importance of service to the 
world, the integration of spiritual instruction and understanding as a part of intellectual growth, and 
the facilitation of cultural and personal affirmation. The general education core curriculum includes 
courses in the philosophy of Christian education, basic computer literacy, health and recreation, 
the humanities, foreign languages, mathematics, natural sciences, religion and theology, and so- 
cial sciences. Baccalaureate and associate degree programs also are designed to harmonize with 
the key elements of the college's mission. 

The college has fifteen academic departments offering the following degrees: Associate of 
Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of 
Science, Bachelor of Social Work, and Bachelor of Music and about forty-five majors and thirty 
minors.

semesters, each of which covers a period of approximately fifteen weeks. Provision may be made 
for mini sessions during the summer and winter breaks. 

Schedule of Classes 

Each year the College publishes a schedule of classes which lists the courses offered, the time 
of meetings, the rooms, and the instructors. The College reserves the right to cancel any course 
offered for which there are less than six students and to set limits on class size when necessary. 

Course Numbers and Symbols 

Courses of instruction are classified as remedial, lower division, and upper division. Remedial 
courses, numbered 090 through 099 (not counted for graduation credits), are courses which may be 
required of certain students. Lower division courses are numbered 1 00 through 299; upper division 
courses are numbered 300 through 499. Students should take each level in turn to avoid scheduling 
problems. Courses with (W) are designated writing courses. Code to course abbreviations are:

The maximum class load for any situation includes incompletes and courses by cooperative 
arrangement (neighboring colleges). 

A class load of 1 2 credit hours is considered full-time and will satisfy the following authorities: 

1 . Immigration and Naturalization Service 

2. Selective Service 

3. Veterans Administration ' 

4. Health, Education, and Welfare 

5. U.S. Department of Labor 

Classification of Students 

New students are classified upon acceptance by the Office of Enrollment Management. Re- 
turning students' classification for the year is determined by the amount of credit they have earned 
at the beginning of the college year. A student who may meet the hour requirement, but whose 
cumulative grade point average is below 2.00, will be listed in the next lower class until the cumula- 
tive grade point average is raised to 2.00 or better. Student classes are organized early in the fall 
semester according to the following levels of academic achievement (remedial courses are not 
included). ^ ^,

Special Students 

Special students accepted to the college fall under the following categories: 

1 . Postbaccalaureate refers to a student with a bachelor's degree who is enrolled for part-time 
or full-time work. 

2. Unclassified applies to any student who meets admission standards but who has no present 
plans to pursue a degree or to a student whose classification cannot be determined at the 
time of admission. 

3. Nondegree refers to a student enrolled in the traditional college courses and who desires to 
take a course or courses for personal development. Courses are limited to three semester 
hours or one course per semester. 

4. Transient admission applies to a student submitting evidence that he or she is in good and 
regular standing in an accredited college or university but who desires temporary admis-

Class standing 

Freshmen are limited to lower division courses except by permission of the head of the depart- 
ment in which the course is being taught. The lower division courses are open to freshmen and 
sophomores and should be completed before the student progresses to the junior and senior years. 

A student entering the third year of college work who lacks any of the prescribed courses of the 
lower division must first register for such prescribed courses of the lower division and then complete 
the program from the upper division. 

Beginning freshmen on academic probation will not be allowed to advance to regular academic 
standing until all academic deficiencies have been removed and at least 1 2 hours of other college 
credit have been earned with a minimum GPA of 2.00. 

Freshmen will not be allowed to advance to sophomore status until they have passed the 
Freshman Composition Sequence and have a GPA of at least 1 .70. Sophomores will not be permit- 
ted to advance to junior status or take any upper division courses until they have a GPA of at least 
2.00. Juniors will not be advanced to senior status or permitted to submit an approved final year 
schedule for graduation until they have passed the English Proficiency Test or EN 250 and have a 
GPA of at least 2.00. 

Permanent Student Records 

The student's permanent academic record is the transcript. The transcript contains biographi- 
cal, geographical, and academic information regarding courses taken and grades earned. This 
information is taken from application for acceptance forms, registration forms, teachers' grade 
sheets, drop/add forms, and teachers' change-of-grade forms. 

Retention and Disposal of Student Records 

The retention and disposal of student records is in accordance with the recommendations of 
the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, as published in the 
guide entitled Retention of Records: A Guide for Retention and Disposal of Student Records. 

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 

Oakwood College complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1 974 (FERPA). 
A student's record is regarded as confidential, and release of this information is regulated by the 
FERPA Act. Students have the right to inspect their records at any time. Parents of students 
termed "dependent" for income tax purposes are entitled to receive information relating to the stu- 
dents' educational records upon request. A copy of the act is on file in the Records Office. 

Registration 

Registration includes advising, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are re- 
quired to register on the designated registration dates as announced in the bulletin. Information on 
registration is available at the registration site. 

Students are not officially registered for courses until their "registration forms" have been pro- 
cessed by the Records Office and all fees have been paid. 

Late Registration 

Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods are assessed a late regis- 
tration fee of $75 and $1 5 for each additional day, to a maximum of $1 35. Class periods missed 
because of late registration are counted as absences from the class. Students registering late may 

39 



be required by the advisor and the vice president for Academic Affairs to reduce their class load. 
Late registrants are required to make up course work already missed. 

Withdrawal From College Courses 

If students want to add or drop a class or change a section after having completed registration 
of credit or audit, they should follow these procedures: 

1 . Drop. Before the deadline (one week after midsemester): (a) obtain form from the Record's 
Office, (b) secure proper signatures, (c) pay the appropriate fee, and (d) return the form to 
the Records Office. Expect a W for the class if dropped between the last day for a 50 
percent refund and the deadline. Forgetting or failure to drop officially through processing a 
form will result in final grade of FA. 

2. Add. By the last day of late registration, follow the same steps (a-d) as listed above under 
"Drop." A charge of $10 is made for each change of schedule until the last day for any 
tuition refund, except when the change is made necessary by the cancellation of a sched- 
uled class or the change of class time which renders it impossible for students to maintain 
their original schedule. 

3. To discontinue a course of study, students must complete a terminal leave form one week 
before final examinations begin, which may be secured from the Office of Student Services. 

Withdrawal From College Due to Disciplinary Action 

A student suspended for disciplinary reasons will not be allowed to make up class work as- 
signed and done during his/her absence. Missed work will incur a grade of "F" and will be computed 
in the student's final grade. 

Final Examinations '*, 

Should the final examination schedule require a student to complete four examinations in one 
day, arrangements may be made with the department chair to complete one of the examinations at 
another time. Otherwise, all students must take the final examination in each course at the time 
listed in the official time schedule. Exceptions may be made only by the vice president for Aca- 
demic Affairs. 

English Proficiency Examination 

Each student is required to take a proficiency examination in English during the junior year. 
Upper division transfer students who have comp^eted Freshman Composition are required to take 
the English Proficiency Examination during the first semester in which the examination is offered. 
This examination is administered as scheduled in the calendar, once each during the fall and spring 
semesters and immediately following spring graduation. Students who fail to pass the examination 
twice are required to enroll in and pass EN 250 English Fundamentals in order to qualify for gradu- 
ation. Students who take EN 304 at Oakwood College and receive at least a B (3.00) are exempt 
from this examination. A fee of $30 is charged for this examination. See the Department of English 
and Communications for details. 

Exit Examination ^ 

All seniors are required to pass a departmental exit examination in their major area of study 
prior to graduation. Exit examinations may be internal or external, written by the department or 
obtained from an external sources such as the Graduate Record Examination.

Life Experience Policy 

Life experience credit is granted upon the evaluation of accomplishments and competencies 
not ordinarily considered part of the traditional classroom experience. The policy is geared toward 
the mature adult who has had a minimum often years' experience in a given area. Credit, however, 
is not applicable until the student has completed a minimum of 1 6 semester hours with a minimum 
GPA of 2.00 at Oakwood College. 

Any credit granted will be for the learning gained, and not just for experience itself. Therefore, 
it is the students' responsibility to prove to the satisfaction of the Academic Policies Committee 
that from their experience they have developed competencies that are equivalent to classroom 
learning. In order to qualify to sit for the challenge examinations, students should follow these 
procedures: 

1 . Describe learning experiences believed to translate into academic credit. 

2. Suggest what courses are applicable. 

3. Review document with academic advisor. 

4. Submit documentary evidence that may be used to verify the experiences identified (this 
would include testimonials from former employers and/or supervisors). 

5. Pass challenge examinations in areas for which credit is expected. 

The following evaluation formula will be used: 

1 . Three hours will be given for each year of full-time work approved for credit by examination. 

2. Not more than 25 percent of the 1 28 hours required for graduation shall be earned through 
life experience. 

3. Not more than 25 percent of the requirements for the major may be met through life expe- 
rience credit. 

The charge for life experience credit by examination is $35 per credit hour. 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having competence or exposure in a certain 
area covered by a required course may meet an academic requirement by passing a CLEP test. 
The following policies apply to the program: 

1 . The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a student may apply toward gradu- 
ation is 32 semester hours. 

2. In each major the maximum number of CLEP subject examination credits a student may 
earn is determined by the major department. 

3. In the case of the general education requirements, the Academic Policies Committee will 
determine which courses can be taken by CLEP and how much credit a student may earn 
from the basic general education requirements without overlapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before credit can be granted. Changes 
in scores by ETS (Educational Testing Services) may change acceptable scores by Oak- 
wood College. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course credit, but no letter grade shall 
be assigned or quality points considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may not repeat the course for 
which credit was given by examination for a grade. 

7. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before entering Oakwood College must 
have the approval of the Records Office before the test is taken. 

41 



8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are subject to review by the Records 
Office. 

9. A fee covering the cost of the examination and its administration will be charged each 
student desiring to take the CLEP examination at Oakwood College. 

The following table lists the CLEP subjects, corresponding courses and minimum scores ac- 
ceptable by Oakwood College:

(withdrew) 



Grade Point Average 

The grade point average (GPA) for the semester is computed by totaling honor points earned in 
all courses attempted and dividing by the total hours attempted (GPA=HP/HA). Credits for which 
grades of F, FA, and I are received are included in calculating the grade point average. The symbols 
AU, NC, DG, W, and P/U are disregarded in computing the grade point average. 

The academic progress record allows for repeated courses without GPA penalty. However, the 
GPA used to determine the eligibility for financial aid includes all work attempted. 

Pass/Unsatisfactory Procedures 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass/unsatisfactory basis, a student must be a sophomore, 
junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. Not more than 1 6 hours may be taken on 
this basis. The pass/unsatisfactory system applies to elective courses only. A pass is equivalent 
to a C, although some graduate and professional schools treat the pass as a D. 

Approval for the P/U option should be obtained at the Records Office before the close of late 
registration. Registration changes in the process are final as of the last day to drop without aca- 
demic penalty. 

Deferred Grades 

A deferred grade is assigned when a student is unable to complete the work because of equip- 
ment failure, insufficient time, or research material having arrived late, or deemed not the student's 
fault. 



43 



Incomplete Work 

When at the end of a semester students are behind in their classwork, the teacher does not 
automatically grant a grade of I for more time to do the requirements. However, because of interrup- 
tive illness or other unavoidable circumstances, students may request the privilege of receiving a 
grade of I to allow more time to fulfill class requirements. They must apply in time so that a final 
decision is made before the beginning of final examination week. The procedures to be followed 
are: 

1 . Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for Incomplete" from the Office of Academic 
Affairs. 

2. Attach a physican's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the appropriate signatures. 

4. Return the form to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs at least five working 
days before the beginning of final examinations. 

An I may be changed to a regular grade when the class work is completed within the approved 
deadline. Such a deadline might range from a few days to several weeks, but no longer than the 
sixth week of the next semester, even when the student is not registered the next semester. The 
I automatically coverts to an F if not removed within the prescribed time. Should more time, 
because of further illness or unavoidable circumstances, be needed to remove the incomplete, the 
student may, before the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time from the Academic 
Policies Committee. 

Repeated Courses 

There is no limit to the number of times a course may be repeated. The better grade for the 
repeated course will be accepted for credit. 

Auditing Courses 

Persons who are interested in auditing courses should register during regular registration. No 
credit is given for a course audited, and the tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 
A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first week of the 
course. 

Correspondence Courses 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with Home Study Interna- 
tional, which is the extension division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 1 2 semester hours of correspondence work may apply toward a baccalaureate 
degree program and 8 semester hours toward an associate degree. All requests for correspon- 
dence work must be approved by the Records Office and /or the Academic Policies Committee. 

While enrolled at Oakwood, a student will not be permitted to carry correspondence if the 
course is available at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension work. Where this is 
an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the work completed must be in the Records Office 
by the first business day in March for spring graduation. 

A correspondence course with a D grade or below is unacceptable. No correspondence credit 
will be entered on the student's record until a minimum of 16 hours in residence with a cumulative 
average of at least C has been earned. Home Study Institute courses do not meet the Alabama 
State Certification requirements for education majors. 



44 



Grade Reports 

Grade reports are issued to the student and, if requested by the student, to the parents or 
guardians at the end of each semester. 

Errors and Corrections 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for correctness as to 
the courses, credits, and grades recorded. Requests for corrections must be initiated within one 
month. 

Dean's List 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.50 who carry a minimum of 1 5 semester 
hours with no grade below a B (3.00) and no incompletes are eligible for membership on the Dean's 
List. 

Honor Roll 

Students who carry a minimum of 1 2 hours and maintain a grade point average of 3.00 or above 
during a given semester with no grade below a C (2.00) shall be considered honor students for the 
semester. 

Honors Convocation 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic achievement, loyalty to college 
standards, and exemplary citizenship, the college conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be 
eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.50 for a mini- 
mum of 24 hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and a minimum of 33 
hours earned at Oakwood College. - 

Graduation With Distinction 

Students are graduated with honors under the following conditions: 
Honorable Mention Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 

Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 

Magna Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.75 

Summa Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.90 

Academic Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal 

All students whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.00 are placed on academic probation. This 
status requires all academic probationary students to take part in the academic improvement pro- 
gram conducted by the Center for Academic Advancement (CAA). Failure of an academic probation 
student to take part in this program may result in dismissal from the college. Students who fail to 
make acceptable academic progress in view of the established policies and procedures of the 
institution will be suspended. A first suspension because of poor academic performance will result 
in the student being ineligible for readmission or reacceptance consideration for a period of one 
semester from the date of suspension. When suspended a second time, students become eligible 
for readmission or reacceptance after one calendar year from the suspension date, providing that 
during that time they have attended another accredited college for at least one semester, carrying a 
minimum of 1 2 semester hours with no grade lower than C. In both cases, to be so considered, the 

45 



student must apply for readmission through the Records Office. 

Any student who after four academic semesters or 61 semester hours has not attained a 
cumulative GPA of 2.00 will be recommended for suspension. During the suspension, the student 
must attend another accredited college carrying a minimum class load of 1 2 hours and passing with 
no grade lower than C. Class schedules must include courses previously taken at Oakwood where 
grades of D or lower were received. Application for readmission must be submitted to the Records 
Office at Oakwood College. 

Students recommended for suspension will receive an official notification of dismissal from the 
Academic Affairs Office, which includes an Academic Suspension Appeal Letter. Once received, 
the student should adhere to the following procedures: 

1 . The form must be completed and returned to the Academic Risk Management Office (ARM) 
of CAA/Freshman Studies within one week of receiving the notification . 

2. Acopyof either the Appeal Approval Form or Appeal Denial Form signed by the chairperson 
will be forwarded to the student within two weeks after receipt of the appeal form. 

3. Academic approval for readmission does not mean that a student meets financial aid guide- 
lines. (Contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance). 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.00 is denied the opportunity and permission to 
represent the college in any official capacity or to hold office in any student organization, or to be 
employed in any academic administrative area involving records and confidentiality. Some social 
restrictions involving leave requests may also apply. 

The following is a list of requirements for students on academic probation: 

1 . Limit registration to class load of 1 3 hours per semester. 

2. Must be advised by the CAA academic advisors for class schedule approval during registra- 
tion. 

3. Include in class load courses in which the student received a D or F. 

4. Must register for remedial courses when the following conditions exist: ACT English score 
is less than 1 6 or SAT English score is less than 410; student must register for EN 095 and 
EN 099. ACT mathematics score is less than 16 or SAT mathematics score is less than 
440; students must register for MA 095. ACT composite is less than 1 7 or SAT composite 
is less than 840; students must take PY 095. 

5. Must successfully pass remedial courses with at least a C before registering for classes in 
English or mathematics. 

6. Must receive weekly tutorial assistance at the CAA. 

7. Must attend weekly advising sessions with the CAA academic advisor. 

Students on academic probation should expect to take more than two years to complete the 
requirements for an associate degree and more than four years to graduate with a bachelor's 
degree. 

Center for Academic Advancement 

The mission of the Center for Academic Advancement (CAA) is to assist students to gain the 
skills necessary to do college-level work. The program, in collaboration with the Departments of 
Psychology, Mathematics and Computer Science, and English and Communications, offers Schol- 
arship Skills, Introduction to College Math, Composition Skill Review, and Developmental Reading 
to select groups of student who need to develop basic skills. In addition to attending regular lecture 
classes, students must attend a laboratory as prescribed by the instructor. However, all labs are 



46 



available to self-motivated students as they assist students across the curricula in tutorials, exer- 
cises, applications, and reviews. 

The laboratory component provides opportunity for individualized instruction consistent with 
student needs and desires. This also gives students the opportunity to assess their deficiencies, 
work to correct them, and receive instant feedback. Upgraded tutorial services supplement the 
developmental laboratories through the cooperative efforts of specialists and the tutor supervisor. 

4 Freshman studies 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional, and supportive 
services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their potential for academic success and 
personal adjustment to the demands of college life. Beginning in the 1 999-2000 school year, all 
entering first-year students and lower division transfer students will be required to take a semester- 
long orientation in addition to the week-long orientation. 

OC 101 Freshman Orientation Seminar 

The Freshman Orientation Seminar is designed to provide pertinent information to help new 
students to make the most of college, this life, and the life to come. This will be accomplished 
by focusing on challenges that integrate the academic, social, and spiritual facets of life, there- 
fore, placing an emphasis on opening the doors to "Education, Excellence, Eternity." 

This course is required of all freshmen and new students entering with less than 30 semester 
hours of transfer credit. Students are not allowed to withdraw from this course except through the 
terminal leave process. 

Orientation 

The week preceding registration for the fall semester of each year is known as Freshmen 
Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status are expected to report as notified 
and, upon arrival, to participate in all of the scheduled activities of the week. These include orienta- 
tion to the academic and residential requirements of the college and the resources that are available 
to assist all students in meeting them successfully, along with developmental guidance and instruc- 
tion regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes that are essential for academic and personal success. 

IVIonitoring Students' Academic Progress (MSAP) 

The Committee on Monitoring Students' Academic Progress (MSAP), which consists of a 
consortium of college administrators, departmental chairs, faculty, and staff, ensures students' 
conformance and compliance to the academic policies of the institution. Qualitative and quantita- 
tive data of students, such as GPAs, class reports, class failures, remediation, withdrawals, 
incompletes, and maximum time frames for academic work completion, are all used to determine a 
student's chances of successfully completing the major course of study. 

At least twice a year, this committee meets to review the academic progress of students whose 
academic standing is in jeopardy. Recommendations are made to suspend, dismiss, retain, or 
warn based on the data presented. 

The committee considers a student's academic progress to be in a serious status when the 
first semester's current GPA is less than 1 .00, or after two semesters the cumulative GPA is less 
than 1.50, or after four semesters or a total of 64 hours the cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. 
Students in these categories are subject to academic suspension. 



47 



Remedial Courses 

Beginning freshmen entering Oakwood College on academic probation must pursue a pre- 
scribed course of remedial studies during their first year, which may include any of the following: EN 
095, EN 099, MA 095, and PY 095. In addition, students who have scored less than 500 on the 
TOEFL must take EN 090 and EN 091 during the first year. 

These remedial courses, which are in addition to the 128 hours needed for graduation, must 
each be passed with a minimum grade of C. Any course failed must be repeated the next semester 
until passed. Grades and hours received from remedial courses will not be computed for graduation 
purposes in the cumulative GPA. 

Diagnostic Testing 

During Freshman Orientation Week, the American College Test (ACT) will be administered to 
new freshmen who have not already taken it or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). 

Results are used for placing students in appropriate courses of study, fulfilling Alabama state 
requirements for entrance into special programs and assisting advisors and counselors in their work 
of helping students to plan their academic programs, evaluate their academic progress, and set 
realistic personal and career goals. Accumulated data will help the college to determine what areas 
of its programs and services need strengthening and/or modification in order to effectively fulfill its 
commitment to the success of its students. Test scores are to be used for institutional purposes 
and cannot be released to another college. 

Academic Advisement and Program Planning 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be acknowledged, first-year stu- 
dents will be encouraged to concentrate on general education requirements for the purpose of 
academic exploration and continuing self-discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended 
interviews and performance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the process of confirming or 
modifying the personal interests and aspirations of each student. 

Disability Services 

The Office of Disability Services assists students with disabilities by eliminating barriers and 
providing access to academic opportunities at Oakwood College. New students with disabilities 
who need special accommodations should contact the Disability Coordinator once they have re- 
ceived their letter of final acceptance and provide documentation of their disability and academic 
recommendations. Currently enrolled students with disabilities should contact the Disability Coor- 
dinator at the beginning of each semester to ensure continuity of services. Early registration will 
also assist students with disabilities in obtaining special supportive services. 

The Eva B. Dykes Library 

The Eva B. Dykes Library is a resource and information technology support center for the 
academic program at Oakwood College. Information services are provided for faculty, students, 
staff, and administrative patrons for learning, teaching, and research purposes. The collection hold- 
ings include books, periodicals and journals, reference resources, multimedia, archival, microform, 
CD-ROM, electronic Internet databases, documents, and other materials.

Oakwood College is moving rapidly toward the goal of creating an electronic campus. The 
centerpiece of this goal is the Technology Center, located in the lower level of the Eva B. Dykes 
Library. Here you will find a fully functioning, 42-station pentium computer lab; a smaller, 1 3-station 
research and training laboratory; a 4-station special projects lab for graphic design and web page 
development; a distance learning lab employing high speed, two-way compressed video and admin- 
istrative offices. Each lab provides the following: Internet access via fiberoptic, T-1 connections; e- 
mail availability; Microsoft Office Suite; Corel WordPerfect Office Suite; remote access, dial-up 
connectivity; specialized software for independent learning and research assignments; Oakwood 
College web-page access and other network resources. 

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to use these computerized multimedia resources 
for optimum learning experiences and administrative improvement. 

The Ellen G. White Estate Oakwood Branch Office 

The Ellen G. White Estate Oakwood Branch Office is a research center located on the lower 
floor of the library. It houses several complete sets of Ellen White's published writings, duplicates of 
her original letters and manuscripts (1 844-1 91 5), books about Ellen White and other Seventh-day 
Adventist pioneers, denominational histories, and other related documents. Microfiche, microfilm, 
and Ellen White research software are available. 

Department Curriculum Laboratories 

Individual departments of the college may have centers or laboratories for the practical use of 
their students. For instance, the Mathematics Department has a mathematics/computer science 
laboratory, located in the Cooper Science Complex, Building B, designed as a center for the rein- 
forcement of biology, chemistry, and physics. The Department of Music has a music laboratory, 
located in the Center for Academic Advancement, designed to help the prospective music student 
overcome deficiencies. The Departments of Psychology and Social Work share a computer labo- 
ratory located in Green Hall. Other departments have seminar rooms and places where students 
may use computers or get special assistance. 

Cooperative Programs 

Cooperative programs are made available at Oakwood College for visiting students. A visiting 
student arrangement exists with Alabama A & M University, Athens State College, John C. Calhoun 
State Community College, the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Oakwood College. Under 
this arrangement, a student at any of the participating institutions may request permission to attend 
a class at one of the other schools. Conditions governing the granting of permission include the 
following: 



49 



1. The student must be a full-time student. 

2. The student must have an overall C average. 

3. The course desired must be unavailable at the student's home institution. 

4. The student's request must be approved by the advisor and other appropriate personnel. 

5. Permission of the institution teaching the course is dependent upon availability of space for 
the visitor after its own students are accommodated. 

Any student interested in participating in the Visiting Student Program should contact the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs for information and procedures. 

Adventist Colleges Abroad 

Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist colleges and univer- 
sities in North America under the auspices of the Board of Higher Education, General Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists, Maryland. 

The ACA consortium provides opportunities to qualified undergraduate students for study in 
other countries, such as Argentina, Austria, France, Kenya, and Spain, while completing the re- 
quirements of their programs at their home colleges. This allows students to be immersed in the 
culture and life of another country while becoming conversant in its language. Through such expe- 
riences students also may gain an appreciation of, and perhaps an inspiration for, mission or other 
multicultural service (see Records Office for details). 

Student Missionary Program 

Each year several Oakwood students go to foreign lands to serve as missionaries. The range 
of their responsibilities include religious leadership, teaching, and industrial/vocational work. For 
details, contact the Department of Campus Ministries, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: ' , 

1 . Applicants must have attained at least sophomore standing (minimum 30 semester hours) 
with a cumulative grade point average of C or above, and no grade below C in all English 
composition and grammar courses. 

2. Applicants must have a B average or above in the subject area that they are expected to 
teach as student missionaries. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student missionary, the student shall 
receive three hours of elective credit on a pass/fail basis in the area of Student Foreign 
Service. Quality of service is determined by a written evaluation from the immediate super- 
visor or appropriate official over the student missionary. Students may opt for an additional 
three hours should they secure prior approval from the instructional department and the 
Academic Policies Committee establishing that more specialized mission services will be 
experienced, such as, but not limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

Student missionaries in active service are considered full-time students. 

Community and Service Learning Course (OC 201) 

This is a seminar (one credit hour) course designed to allow the student to gain a better 
understanding of community service, leadership development, citizenship, community awareness, 
global awareness, and ethnical/legal considerations involved in volunteerism in the community. It is 
designed to help students come to a personal understanding of community service and leadership 
through learning based on volunteer service experience, readings, group discussion, interaction and 



50 



critical reflection. The course builds on the premise that individual citizens have both an opportunity 
and a responsibility to be involved in the life of the community and in addressing community prob- 
lems. 



Other Academic Information 

Writing Emphasis Courses 

Two writing emphasis courses of at least two hours each are required of all upper division 
students. Each department will designate and supervise at least one required course for its majors 
which will emphasize essay type tests and/or written reports or a term paper. A (W) after a course 
title designates a writing course. 

Summer School 

The college offers a limited number of brief intensive courses and workshops. Undergraduate 
courses in the teacher certification program are also offered. 

Transient Letters 

Students desiring to register at another college or university with the intent of returning must 
obtain a transient letter from the Records Office, which recommends the student for temporary 
admission to the other school without the student's having to go through normal admission require- 
ments. Transient letters, however, are not granted for attendance at colleges or universities within 
a fifty-mile radius of Huntsville during the fall or spring semesters. 

Transient credit with grades below C- is unacceptable. Acceptable credit is recorded as trans- 
fer credit. Students from other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood must provide an 
official letter of support from the home institution. 

Transcripts 

The Records Office releases official transcripts of a student's work at the college upon the 
student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript to use, but official transcripts must be sent 
directly to other colleges, organizations, and approved sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the record of any student 
who has unpaid accounts or other charges, or who is in delinquent or default status in payment of 
student loans. 

Two weeks should be allowed for the processing and mailing of the transcript after the request 
has been received. Official transcripts from other institutions which have been presented to Oak- 
wood for admission and evaluation of credit become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued 
or copied for release. Each student is entitled to one official transcript without charge. A fee of 
$2.00 is charged for each additional official transcript and $1 .00 for an unofficial transcript for stu- 
dents not enrolled. Other fees assessed as applicable. 

Class Absences 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appointments. Absences 
are counted from the first official day of classes. If for any reason the total hours of absences are 
double the number of credit hours of the course per semester, credit may, at the discretion of the 
instructor, be forfeited and a grade of FA be recorded. 

51 



Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from required class 
work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated school 
trip and other authorized leaves at least 72 hours before the beginning of such anticipated sched- 
ules. All makeup work involving examinations and other class requirements must be made up 
within seven days after the absence occurs. 

It is the responsibility of students to keep a record of their absences, to keep themselves 
informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at the time prescribed by the 
instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they are due. 

Academic Honesty 

Oakwood College is dedicated to scholastic integrity. Consequently, students of the college 
are required to maintain high Christian standards of honesty. If students are found or suspected of 
engaging in any of the following types of academic misconduct, the procedures set forth in this 
policy will be implemented. 

Types of Academic Dishonesty: 

1 . Dishonesty in testing (e.g., copying from another student's paper, using unauthorized ma- 
terials, or collaborating with any other person without authority from the instructor during an 
examination; stealing test materials; obtaining test information prior, during, or after an 
administered examination; or any other form of test dishonesty). 

2. Plagiarism — defined as unacknowledged use of another's work (e.g., submitting any writ- 
ten, oral, aesthetic, computer, or laboratory work prepared totally or in part by another 
person; such work need not be copyrighted). 

3. Any other practice deemed by the college as academic misconduct not listed above. 

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty 

If a teacher finds irrefutable evidence of academic dishonesty, the teacher should immediately 
speak with the student and issue zero credit for the particular examination, assignment, or project. 
If academic misconduct is suspected by a teacher, that teacher must follow certain steps. 

1. The teacher must first speak with the student about the question of dishonesty. If the 
student acknowledges engaging in academic misconduct, the student will be given no 
credit for the particular examination, assignment, or project. 

2. If the situation cannot be resolved between the teacher and student, then it must be brought 
to the attention of the teacher's department chair. 

3. If the department chair is unable to resolve the matter, the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs must then be consulted, and may refer the issue to the Academic Appeals Commit- 
tee. 

4. Subsequent incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible for dismissal from 
the college. Students are, however, given the option of appealing this decision to the Aca- 
demic Appeals Committee. 

5. Each established incident of academic misconduct shall be departmentally documented 
and submitted to both the student, the student's major department chair, the vice president 
for Academic Affairs, and the vice president for Student Services. 

Academic Grievance 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional matters such as perceived 
unfairness, grading methodology, cheating, or some other misunderstanding within or without the 



52 



classroom is encouraged to confer first with the teacher of the class and, if deenned necessary, with 
the teacher's department chair. If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily at the first two levels, the 
student should contact the vice president for Academic Affairs. 

The vice president for Academic Affairs will review the matter to (a) make a final determination of 
the matter, or (b) refer the matter to the Academic Appeal Committee for further review and recom- 
mendation. In either case, the final decision is the responsibility of the vice president for Academic 
Affairs. 

The Academic Appeal Committee receives referrals directly from the vice president for Aca- 
demic Affairs. Cases are referred to this committee if the vice president for Academic Affairs 
determines more information is needed to make an equitable decision. The process is as follows: 
(a) the vice president for Academic Affairs notifies the chair of the Academic Appeal Committee of 
the student's concern, (b) the aggrieved student submits a written report of the complaint to the 
chair of the Academic Appeal Committee, and (c) a recommendation is made to the vice president 
for Academic Affairs. 

Students or faculty members have the option to appear in person before the Academic Appeal 
Committee, bringing documentation to support their views; however, it is not required that they 
appear in person. It should be understood that the purpose of the appeals process is to peaceably 
resolve issues which have not been resolved through other means. Therefore, the approach to 
problem resolution in the appeals process is through consensus, so far as is possible. 

The membership of the Academic Appeal Committee consists of six individuals: the USM 
academic vice president (chair), two elected student representatives, two full-time teaching faculty, 
and one full-time staff member. The vice president for Academic Affairs or designee may choose to 
sit with the Academic Appeal Committee for purposes of hearing the discussion or for clarification of 
issues, but not for voting purposes. 

^ Bulletin Selection 

Students may meet degree requirements under the bulletin of initial registration or any bulletin 
in effect during the time of continuous residence at Oakwood. Selecting the senior year bulletin 
must be done prior to the final semester of the graduating year. Students who discontinue enroll- 
ment must meet the following bulletin requirements: 

1 . If not enrolled for one calendar year or less, students may return under any bulletin in effect 
during their previous continuous residence. Transfer credit will be accepted provided that a 
transient letter request has received prior approval from the Records Office. 

2. Students not enrolled for more than one calendar year must meet the requirements of the 
current bulletin. 

3. Seniors with 9 hours or less remaining at the time of spring graduation have a maximum of 
two calendar years to complete their requirements and remain under the bulletin they 
selected during their senior year. 

4. All transfer students must fulfill the requirements of the current bulletin. 

Double Major 

Students may enroll for a double major provided they meet all of the requirements for both 
majors. Pursuing a double major will require more than 1 28 hours and take longer than four years 
to complete. 



53 



Medicine 

Biology and chemistry are the most frequently chosen majors at Oakwood for students prepar- 
ing for a career in medicine. However, students from every academic major are accepted into 
medical school. Diversity is actually encouraged by many medical schools which have come to 
realize that students who pursue majors in art, literature, mathematics, engineering, and other 
areas of liberal arts study tend to become well-rounded, highly competent physicians. Most medi- 
cal schools have the following science requirements: one year of general biology, two years of 
chemistry — general and organic, one year of general physics, and mathematics. 

IVIedical School Early Selection Program 

Students wishing to participate in the Oakwood College-Loma Linda University early selection 
programs (ESP) must apply by January 15 of their sophomore year. Students completing two 
summers as an ESP student in either dentistry or medicine will receive the appropriate hours on a 
pass/fail basis as follows: NS 320 Orientation to Dentistry and NS 321 Orientation to Medicine. 
Students actively involved in the ESP are considered full-time students. 



Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of Biological Sciences to develop in its students a thor- 
ough understanding of and an appreciation of the principles underlying the basic functions of 
living organisms. The curriculum is designed for those students wishing to enter graduate, 
medical, dental, or allied health schools, as well as for those planning to teach in elementary or 
secondary schools. Opportunity is also available for laboratory research for those planning to 
enter research careers. 

High School Preparation 

Courses in biology, chemistry, general science, and mathematics are ail highly desirable, 
and it is strongly recommended that all high school students wishing to pursue a career in the 
sciences take these classes. 

Application for Admission 

To be admitted as a major in the Department of Biological Sciences, students must have 
completed at least 32 hours of course work, including EN 112 Freshman Composition and Bl 
132 General Biology, and have an overall GPA of 2.25. 

Exit Examination 

All senior biology majors are required to take one of the following exit examinations: the ETS 
Biology Test, which must be passed within two standard deviations of the national norm or the 
GRE Advanced Biology Test which must be passed with a score of at least 850. 

Career Opportunities 

Biology remains the major of choice for students who desire to become medical doctors. 
However, biology, the study of living things, is a science that encompasses many specialties and 
opportunities for rewarding careers. Modern biology pursues the quest for a full understanding, at 
the molecular level, of the basic mechanisms underlying life processes, while also concerning itself 
with current social issues related to human health, behavior, overpopulation, and the impact made 
on the earth's natural, life-sustaining environment. Many trained biologists and health professionals 

58 



will be needed in the search for effective answers to such dilennmas as AIDS, cancer, autoinnmune 
disorders, and inborn errors of metabolism. 

Graduates from this department may also pursue careers in agriculture, allied health profes- 
sions, environmental sciences, dentistry, medicine, and teaching.

Purpose Q 

It is the purpose of the Department of Chemistry to prepare its students for acceptance into C 

graduate and professional schools, to provide training required for employment in the laboratories r- 
of government and industry, and to prepare them for careers in teaching chemistry at the secondary 

level. While pursuing these objectives, the department seeks to offer its students a quality program C 

of chemical education that underscores the importance of the liberal arts and nurtures the re- 
integration of faith and reason. 

It is the purpose of the Allied Health Program to prepare students choosing allied health careers, C 

to give guidance regarding the choice of schools to complete their professional education, and to aid ^ 
in their placement in professional school. 

High School Preparation r- 

Students planning to study chemistry at Oakwood should include as many science and C 

mathematics courses as possible in high school, and they should endeavorto make superiorgrades r- 
in these courses. The following courses are strongly recommended : Algebra I , Algebra 1 1 , Precalcu- 

lus, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. , C 

c 
c

Career Opportunities 

Ask an old chemist what he would like most, and his answer would be, "a young chemist." This 
statement describes the atmosphere of enthusiasm about chemistry and chemical research that 
permeates the department. Indeed, chemistry at Oakwood is an exciting confrontation of the 
student with the theories and the methods of modern chemistry and biochemistry. Many of the 
graduates of this department have earned doctoral degrees in science, medicine, and dentistry from 
some of the most prestigious universities in this country and in Europe. Others have achieved 
successful careers in the laboratories of government and industry as chemists, biochemists, and 
engineers. Oakwood has been listed as one of the 23 historically Black colleges that are most 
productive of Black scientific talent. 

Most of the growth that is occurring in health professions is happening in the allied health careers. 
Physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assistant are examples of allied health careers 
that are consistently on the Bureau of Labor Statistics list of highly desirable-professions that will 
enjoy good salaries and job security due to their role in the health care system and because demand 
outstrips supply. Minority students are especially needed in the allied health professions, as Blacks 
are underrepresented in almost every health profession. However, good academic preparation is vital 
to success. Therefore, the Allied Health curriculum and advisement are designed to maximize 
academic success and support the College's mission to assist in the development of Christian 
character.
